Hereford-based Offshore Turbine Services reported savings from choosing composite over aluminum craft in the offshore wind market.

As the company takes delivery of its fourth CTruk 20T multi-purpose cat, Commander P, and eagerly awaits Commodore P, the fifth, this May, chairman Phil Collins commented on this decision, “We are very pleased that in under a year we have managed to establish ourselves in such a dynamic and innovative industry. That success has been helped by our original decision to purchase CTruk’s composite vessels, which have proven more than suitable for the job.”

OTS operations director Nick Bright has worked closely with CTruk on design enhancements to the wheelhouse, further consolidating a close working relationship. Nick explained, “The reliability, adaptability, fuel economy and all-round excellent performance of our existing 20T fleet on the London Array and East Lincs wind farm developments was a major consideration for us in the purchase of our latest vessels from CTruk.”

Commander P was named by Phil Collins' wife and youngest daughter, Audrey and Molly Collins, at an informal ceremony on Saturday. She is expected to start work soon under contract with CWind.
